NEWS | 01/12/2016The 1998 final saw Real Madrid overcome Vasco de Gama.
On 1 December 1998, Real Madrid secured the club's second Intercontinental Cup after seeing off Vasco de Gama in the final. The Whites had won their seventh European Cup title the previous season and they claimed this trophy 38 years on courtesy of an unforgettable and decisive strike from Raúl.
Prior to Raúl's effort, Real Madrid got their noses in front after Nasa, in his efforts to clear the ball, contrived to send a Roberto Carlos cross from the left into his own net. The Brazilian outfit then restored parity at the start of the second half through Juninho. As the game entered its final stages, Raúl popped up with his historic Aguanís goal, leaving two defenders grounded, before firing the ball home to seal the club's second Intercontinental Cup.
